Jeff's Go-To Cymbals
22” Artisan Light Ride
20” Artisan Light Ride
22” HHX Complex Medium Ride
18” HHX Anthology Low Bell
HHX Anthology is the pinnacle of essential HHX technologies, uniting traditional and contemporary sounds. These cymbals embody Jojo Mayer’s philosophy that it is the player who decides what the cymbals are.
18” HHX Complex Thin Crash
A combination of HH and HHX hammering results in one of the richest, punchiest crash cymbals SABIAN has ever produced. The Complex Thin Crashes offer plenty of versatility to easily cross musical styles.
15” HHX Complex Medium Big Cup Hats
HHX Complex Big Cup Hats, have an oversized cup that not only enhances their overall cut and response but also produces a feel more like a smaller pairing, giving you the fullness of 15’s with the feel of 14’s.
